Since 2005 I have been using photography and multimedia practices to produce work that embodies emotion, memory and storytelling. My work pushes beyond the limitations of hung gallery work, by investigating the use of photography as installation I explore how interaction can influence the viewer’s engagement and relationship with the work.
I am currently Artist in Residence as part of the AA2A scheme at Sheffield Hallam University, undertaking a project which explores the issues of authorship and narrative surrounding the theme of the family album and how photography can enable us to decipher relationship dynamics. For the project I am working with found glass negatives of a Scottish military family from 1902. I am examining how different development techniques can add tone, mood and emotion to photographic images and how accompanying text and presentation can add to or alter the story the images tell.
